Free software

I’m not much of a software geek and I don’t own a MAC, but I’ll pass this along anyway. A press release in the inbox today from says the St. Paul company is giving away online versions of its software tomorrow. The software allows Windows apps to run on MAC OS X machines.

The release is pegged to a promise to allow the free downloads if gas fell below $2.80 a gallon, which seemed like an impossibility a few months ago.

A few of my software-literate friends (via Twitter, the terrorist tool) says it’s more publicity stunt than useful information.
